There are really nice Fiamme rims still made. I have some stashed that are box rims, silver, classic looking but lace up like moderns, sure to be round and stalwart. Last I looked Ital-techno sold some, also Bicycle Specialties.

If you're looking for a classic eyeletted rim, the Mavic Open Pro, Mavic Open Sport or DT Swiss RR 1.1 might do the trick.

For an aero profile rim, Velocity's Aerohead, Fusion or Deep V are real nice. Mavic also does silver aero rims in their CXP series.

I've got the silver Open Pro rims on a couple of bikes and they match the polished aluminum and ti parts well. However, the OPs have a matte finish, not shiny. Personally I wouldn't want shiny because it would reflect light too much on sunny days, but that's my personal taste.

If you want to go Campy 8 speed... these Ventos would be perfect. :D
